Why not? You're not going to suggest that the goal is self-expression?

You can argue, of course, that writing a manual that is easy to maintain is working in your employer's interest because that saves money in the long run. However, if your employer needs the documentation in a hurry, then meeting the deadline becomes the priority and an elegant solution secondary.

Not if there was nothing else to be,
But if love is what you're dying to discover (darling)
Don't slit your wrists for me."
